Business News: Entergy Powers Arkansas Communities with nearly $264,000 in grants
(STL.News) – Many Arkansans fondly remember Brandon Burlsworth, the University of Arkansas football player featured in the movie “Greater.” Who could forget his signature heavy black-framed glasses? Those glasses and many pairs before them gave him one of the tools he needed to be successful academically.
Through the Burlsworth Foundation’s “Eyes of a Champion” program, Arkansas students who would otherwise fall through the cracks are provided free eye exams and glasses. These are students do not qualify for ArKids or Medicaid and do not have vision insurance.
